BENEFITING: AFRICAN WELL FUND

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013

THE STORY:

The African Well Fund will host the 11th Annual Build a Well for Bono's Birthday fundraiser April 15-May 31. AWF aims to raise $10,000 through this year's fundraiser to fully fund the Mali Dibaro School WASH Project, a $50,000 project to be implemented by Africare that will benefit over 1,800 schoolchildren and community members.

For more information on the project, read the project proposal and budget here.

In addition to accepting donations online, AWF will also be raising money for Build a Well for Bono's Birthday by auctioning a custom snare drum donated by District Drum Co.. The fundraiser will also be the beneficiary of a screening of the film "Meet Me in the Sound" and an after party featuring Unforgettable Fire during the 2013 U2 Conference in Cleveland April 25-28.

Donors are invited to add their birthday messages here, which will be included in a card that will be sent to Bono in care of Principle Management.

Between 2003 and 2012, U2 fans donated more than $220,000 in Bono's honor to fund the construction of clean water and sanitation projects, implemented in Africare, that are benefiting more than 56,000 people in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
